when the sky will be silver, and the mango tree will suspire the breeze,
that’s when I’ll come to you
like the ebb tide touches the bank, dry, on the full moon with passion.

and now I’m going to lie down on your bosom, that’ll heave as you sleep.

damned and cursed I may be, but, this love is not
Written for Day 13 of National/Global Poem Writing Month 2019.
Our optional prompt for the day takes its cue from Jack Prelutsky’s poem “The Witch”, as well as this poem by Dean Young, called “Belief in Magic.” Today, we’d like to challenge you to write a poem about something mysterious and spooky! Your poem could be about something that is mysterious and spooky in a bad way (like a witch), or mysterious and spooky in a good way (possibly also like a witch? It depends on the witch, I guess!) Or just the everyday, mysterious, spooky quality of being alive.
